Abstract

Objectives: The study aimed to investigate the importance of dental scan in finding the relationship betwwen  the distance of maxillary posterior teeth roots and the sinus floor  using Denta scan®.
Duration: January 2017 to November, 2017.
Methodolo: Denta scan® images of sixty patients with l maxillary first premolar to maxillary second molar. The association of tooth root with maxillary sinus is classified into four types of Denta scan. Distance amongst the sinus floor and root, the bone thickness between the root and alveolar cortical plate wias measured and being  analyzed.
Conclusion: The bone thickness was significantly thinner in the maxillary premolar and maxillary molar as compared to other maxillary posterior teeth roots. Anatomical relationship increased the knowledge and guided us further treatment of proper preoperative planning. Avoided the possible complications encounter while performing the minor oral surgical procedures.
